Notices issued by the owner or mortgagee


Notice to vacate given by an owner

An owner may give a resident a notice to vacate where the dwelling is to be sold or offered for sale with vacant possession (section 498ZX(1)(k)). The notice must be accompanied by documentary evidence which supports the reasons for giving the notice.

As the giving of the notice could result in the resident moving to unsatisfactory accommodation or even homelessness, OPA will be looking to the SIL provider as one organisation able to inform OPA who is supporting the resident to find new accommodation.

OPA’s expectations of SIL providers

OPA expects the SIL provider will:

▢ advise OPA of the name, address and contact details of

▢ any NDIS support coordinator (if known)

▢ the NDIS planner (if known)

▢ any guardian, administrator or NDIS Plan Nominee

▢ any advocate, family member or other supporter assisting the resident

▢ advise OPA of any supports or government bodies involved with the resident.

Notice by mortgagee

Where a mortgagee becomes entitled to possession of, or to exercise a power of sale of, the dwelling, the mortgagee may give the SDA resident a notice to vacate (s498ZZD).

As the giving of this notice could result in the resident moving to unsatisfactory accommodation or even homelessness, OPA will be looking to the SIL provider as one organisation able to inform OPA who is supporting the resident to find new accommodation.
